Odell Beckham on his future: No one knows what the future holds

Odell Beckham Jr. is under contract with the Browns through 2023. But he was under contract with the Giants through 2023, too, when they traded him to the Browns.

Beckham was vague about his future when asked Thursday if he will be with the Browns next season.

“What the does the future hold? I don’t know,” Beckham said, via Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “No one knows what the future holds tomorrow. I couldn’t tell you. My locker is right next to one of the people that mean the most to me in the world [Jarvis Landry]. I think about coming to work and seeing him every single day and how special this could be, so I couldn’t sit here and tell you whether I’m going to be here, want to be here, don’t want to be here. This is exactly where I’m at right now, and I wouldn’t rather be anywhere else.”

Beckham is on pace to produce almost exactly the same numbers as last season when he played only 12 games. Through 12 games this season, he has 57 catches for 805 yards and two touchdowns after making 77 receptions for 1,052 yards and six touchdowns in his final season with the Giants.

  1. Translation: I don’t want to be here. The only reason I don’t totally hate being here is because my only friend in the entire world is here.

  2. The Giants’ decision to trade OBJ wasn’t as dumb as we thought. And they probably got the right level of return, judging by what this season has been like.

  3. How about this:

    “I don’t know what the future holds, im a Cleveland Brown and I’ll give them my all. I want to win here and hope that we have success as a team going forward”

    Some players just don’t understand PR. Stop giving the media fodder when they’re chomping at the bit to write any and every story about the massive disappointment surrounding the Browns.

  4. I believe he is playing injured. He is not going anywhere. He may need a surgery in the off-season but Cleveland will bring him back.

  5. All dude needed to say was ‘I’m under contract next year with the browns’. Ha, i guess he’s about to force his way out.

  6. Yes, yes I have been on the fence about Obj since he missed voluntary team activities, I pray he is asking off the team. Hes a great reciever but not for Baker he is a 17 million dollar distraction and the second best option on our squad, do you know what hes worth right now easily a 1st and 3rd and a player. And with the extra cap we can use common sense and resign hunt, Higgins, and schobert. He’s ridiculous with the face mask and the cleats and the watch. Hes more worried about targets than wins. I’m pretty sure hes been struggling with routes and were to lineup. Trade him please our offense will be better.

  7. As much flax as the Giants got for the Beckham and Vernon trades it’s looking like a total fleecing by Gettlemen. Peppers has been a constant bright light (minus the injury) on a bad Giants D and Zietler is the only good player on the Giants line. Both have been better than Beckham.

  8. OBJ will be a Patriot next season, just watch. The Browns have been an absolute joke this season. If the Browns truly want to succeed, they at least need to do 5 things.

    5. Get rid of Jimmy & Dee Haslam
    4. Fire their fat southerner head coach
    3. Trade OBJ to the Patriots for next season
    2. Release Myles Garrett & hope that Jerrah Jones signs him
    1. Hire Lincoln Riley as their next head coach to make Baker Mayfield happy
